CAI = Cold Air Intake

One thing that I would suggest with your size rig and seeing that you have a 4X4 re: maneuvering .....use 4X4 low for backing up 'any' slope. This will save (tranny) from over heating and give you nice slow control.
Note: I have disconnected the air tubes for switching on the fly to do this.
I just do the manual hub switch if and when I need true 4X4.
PS I even use 4X4 low for maneuvering into camp spots...it just creeps along at idle nice control. (front wheels disengaged)

So I checked with my friend what he would do to a 99 7.3 for towing. He agreed with tuner, exhaust, and intake, EGT gauge, plus...

Billet turbo wheel
Transmission cooler from a 6.0 PSD.

He says the stock downpipe is 3.5", but a 4" will fit.

A billet wheel has been proven time and time again to not add any performance. All it does is make the whistle louder.

Me personally, if it is an automatic, I would buy the most bulletproof transmission on the market. They aren't that tough stock, but everybody that has a built one says they are a dream.

Same exact design, the billet offers no gain vs cast. however the billet is stronger and less susceptible to fatigue.

Driving home today, saw dot had a f350 flat deck loaded up, pulling a bobcat, pulled over on the side of the road.

It does happen.
